First: thanks for making peace. I enjoy your knowledge of early dead (it beats the hell out of mine), and I look forward to your future posts.

Second: Yeah, the 'dale used to whup up on us pretty good. I remember subway ride home in 1963, maybe, when a bunch of Riverdale guys started razzing us Manners. They were a bit older, and they were talking trash about the upcoming HM Riverdale football game. This black gentleman oddered to bet me that Calvin Hill was going to score at least three T.D.s I was going to brashly take hin up on it until a classmate told me he WAS Calvin Hill and that I'd best shut my mouth.

Hill was actually nice about it. He did score thre, by the way.

My only other close encounter was in 1968, at the Ivey League wrestling championships. My brother was co-captain and wrestled at 168. He was quite good. But his nemesis was Riverdale's best, Mike Minnouchi. Mike was undefeated over three years. Bobby wrestled him to a draw and was awarded the win based on one second of riding time. He was given the M.V.P.

Other than that, I lived inside my head for the most part.

Cool story about Calvin Hill. I'm not surprised that he was not a complete dick-head, he has certainly been very classy throughout his career in the NFL and as an a baseball executive with the Baltimmore Orioles.

Horace Mann did have some very competitive wrestlers back when I was at Riverdale. My best friends arch rival at 128# was a talented kid from Horace Mann.

My sport was lacrosse. Unfortunately HM did not have a team at that time....

No. We probably had "touch frisbee."
